I'm writing this at 2:30 in the morning, unable to go back to sleep because my machine is acting up. For starters, I use Resmed Air Sense 10 for Her with Humid Air.
This is the second night where the hose connected to my mask starts making a thumping noise every time I inhale and has woken me up at this hour. Last night, I had no choice but to go back to sleep without my mask on (woke up with a headache in the morning and needed a nap during the day, just like old times!)
I have tried disconnecting the house and shaking out any trapped water and restarting my machine (unplug and plug back in). I'm not sure what else to do. This cannot happen another night, or it well effect my work week
I have a video where it's black but you can clearly hear the noise it's making. I'm having issues uploading it on this thread. If anyone wants to hear it, I could email it.
Just an idea - could it be the airflow valve in your mask which is causing this noise? What type of mask do you have (your profile shows the machine type where the mask type should go)?
